08:11:52namespaceSo, I downloaded the utility, it runs, but it won't install the patched bootloader to my Sanza Fuze Plus, is this a known issue with a known fix?
08:12:02namespace(Like say, I forgot some step and need to go do it.)
08:14:55 Join kimdem [0] (~kimdem@
08:18:32[Saint]define "won't install the patched bootloader"
08:18:53namespaceI can't. Because that's all it says in the automated installer.
08:19:00[Saint]It should just be dropping a patched firmware file on the device and prompting you to safely disconnect and reboot.
08:19:04namespaceAnd the log file didn't seem to be very helpful.
08:20:36[Saint]Rockbox utility should be asking you to provide a firmware file, yes?
08:20:59namespaceAnd I do.
08:21:13[Saint]ANd then what.
08:21:19namespaceWhen I dropped the vanilla firmware file into my Sanza's root it updated.
08:21:24namespaceSo presumably it's legitimate.
08:21:41namespaceThen it starts the installation.
08:21:56namespaceAnd fails, with the error that it couldn't install the patched bootloader.
08:23:25namespacePherhaps the program doesn't have the right permissions to modify my device?
08:23:30[Saint]WHat firmware version is this?
08:23:31[Saint]While the installer _should_ be able to patch any version of the firmware, that may not be the case.
08:23:48[Saint]It shouldn;t be a permissions issue, as it doesn;t need any fancy access.
08:23:50 Join LinusN [0] (~linus@

08:25:29[Saint]Oh, hmmm. It may be a permissions issue, this target is different than I thought.

08:27:09[Saint]You could always just try this:
08:27:15namespaceGot it working.
08:27:21namespaceThe graphical program anyway.
08:27:22[Saint]pamaury keeps a compiled bootloader here -,26284.msg219884.html#msg219884
08:27:26namespaceNow to see if it installs...
08:27:41[Saint]and current builds are here:
08:27:53[Saint]extract both to the main storage and reboot.
08:28:11namespaceNope...okay I think I'll try that.
08:28:57namespaceThe build is current.
08:28:57[Saint]the firmware version you're using is indeed known good - frankly, I have no idea why the utilty would be failing.
08:29:13namespaceMe either.
08:29:21namespaceI'm a little frustrated, but only a little.
08:32:08***Saving seen data "./dancer.seen"
08:34:36namespaceApparently that file has been "deleted or moved".
08:34:53namespaceYou are talking about the dropbox one right?
08:46:55[Saint]Oh - well, that sucks.
08:48:05[Saint]I guess I could compile it for you.

08:58:46[Saint]but for some reason my upspeed is crippled right now.
08:58:57[Saint]~4 mins
08:59:15bluebrother[Saint]: why a patched bootloader?
08:59:52[Saint]sorry, wrong terminology
09:00:01[Saint]bootloader-patched firmware.
09:01:15bluebrotherah :)
09:01:19 Quit mt (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
09:01:30bluebrotheranyway, I'd like to see what the real problem is here.
09:01:45[Saint]Oh, indeed.
09:02:45*[Saint] should've chosen a better content host but its at that stage where it'd take just as long if I cancelled and started it anew elsewhere. Bah.
09:03:14namespaceWait, I think I figured it out.
09:03:22namespaceThe mountpoint is listed as /run/lock.
09:03:25[Saint]Gah. :)
09:03:32bluebrotherthat one won't work :)
09:03:39[Saint]Yeah - that'll do it.
09:03:43 Join Andrew_S [0] (
09:03:46namespaceHow to fix?
09:03:57[Saint]give the corret mount point.
09:04:08namespaceI don't think there's a button to change it.
09:04:23[Saint]There is indeed.
09:04:44namespaceNope, only seeing 'eject' here. Maybe I need to put the device into another mode so it can be properly mounted?
09:05:41bluebrothergo to the configuration dialog
09:05:46namespaceOr is the mount point in setting-knew it.
09:06:12bluebrotherthe whole "Device" area has a "Change" button
09:06:33[Saint]well - even though its largely pointless:
09:06:37bluebrotherwow, is that really that unclear? Might need a change then
09:06:59[Saint]!uAgD2S6R!KQJZUy8K3QLTKt-VWijk40cM_DMqc5r0-Wh9TVEGYFg rather.
09:07:02[Saint]damn pastebuffer.
09:08:16bluebrotherwe really need a new release ...
09:08:26namespaceIt's working now.
09:08:35namespaceReally should have caught the mount point thing way sooner.
09:11:25namespaceThanks guy.s
09:12:23 Join DerPapst [0] (
09:12:25[Saint]I should've asked.
09:12:33[Saint]It was really foolish of me not to.
09:12:43[Saint]That should've been my first question.
09:13:01[Saint]My apologies.
09:13:12Andrew_SPardon the interruption. FYI to the channel: I posted a question regarding a SanDisk Clip Zip w/audio gliches on the 2nd. copper asked if I might link a sample of the audio. I've done this. URLs: (more) −−
09:13:39bluebrothermaybe we should run autodetection every time the configuration dialog is opened if the player configuration is invalid
09:13:45namespace[Saint]: I should have noticed.
09:14:09namespaceIt doesn't help that I hadn't mounted my Sanza yet.
09:14:16namespaceOf all the crucial steps to miss...
09:15:26[Saint]Blindly trusting it to find the correct mountpoint isn't uncommon.
09:15:37[Saint]Some users have no concept of what this actually is.
09:16:02[Saint]And there is a certain tendency to expect it to work as intended.
09:16:06namespaceDoesn't change that *I* should have known better.
09:16:22[Saint]We're all merely human.
09:16:34namespace"/run/lock, yeah that looks like the right mount point" *facepalm*
09:16:56[Saint]shoulda used sudo.
09:17:12bluebrotherwith removeable devices mounted on /run/<something> these days it's not too far off.

09:17:27namespaceThe funny part is that thought actually went through my mind.
09:17:39bluebrother[Saint]: why? You don't need sudo for installing (except on sansapatcher / ipodpatcher based devices)
09:17:43namespaceAnd devices being mounted on /run is exactly why I though that.
09:17:58[Saint]bluebrother: you would if you wanted to patch to /run/lock
09:18:08*bluebrother liked it better when removable devices were mounted to /media
09:18:13[Saint]I was being humorous.
09:18:21[Saint]Or attempting to.
09:18:57bluebrotherseems it's too early for me :)
09:18:58Andrew_Sto update the matter: I've taken the unit back and exchanged it for another, the replacement does not exhibit the issue I'd noted earlier, so it appears to have been some manner of hw issue. The link has a sort passage recorded from the bad unit on which you the hear the problem, less the noise and slight distortion from recording and compression. This could be of interest to the community...
09:18:59Andrew_S...of Zip owners. I'll monitor the irc log for any followup responses, but I am not soliciting any at this time. Thanks everyone!

20:41:36treaki__(hi leute)
20:43:32treaki__a schoolmate told me that there is a open source firmware for MP3-Players and i have just installed Rockbox on my Sansa Clip+
20:43:33treaki__(Ein Schulkamerad erzhlte mir das es eine OpenSorce Firmware fr MP3-Player gibt und da habe ich gleich Rockbox auf meinen Sansa Clip+ installiert)

20:44:27treaki__yea, i have wrote bilingual;)
20:44:45treaki__i have following questions:
20:45:14treaki__1. is it possible to change the power switch delay?
20:45:44madcat1990as in, the amount of time it takes, while holding the power button, for it to turn off?
20:45:59treaki__at the stock boot loader you have to press the power button some time (i guess 2 seconds) to start the player
20:46:41treaki__yes thats what i mean
20:47:06treaki__but the time its takes while holding to turn off is fine
20:47:25 Join Scall [0] (~chat@unaffiliated/scall)
20:47:37treaki__my problem is that the player starts up if i just press the button for less then a secound

20:50:23madcat1990Hmm.. Unfortunately, that goes beyond my level of expertise.
20:50:46madcat1990I don't think there is anything we can "Configure" in our boot loader though rockbox. This does sound like an issue/bug. You should report it
20:51:12madcat1990 here

20:53:06treaki__my second problem is that there is no general key lock feature
20:54:14madcat1990have you tried checking this document : and see if there's any indication of this feature?
20:54:23madcat1990if not, go to that link and submit a suggestion for a feature
20:54:38gevaertsThere's a lock feature on the WPS
20:54:40gevaertsmadcat1990: no
20:54:47gevaertsWe do *not* take feature requests
20:55:07gevaertsYou can discuss new feature ideas on the forums, but they are *not* welcome on the tracker
20:55:16madcat1990Oh, my bad. I'll keep that in mind
20:56:26treaki__yes, i have "checked out" the manual but only to look up some thinks, i dont read it entirely
20:57:33treaki__i know there is the possiblity to lock the keys while playing by pressing the select and the home key together
20:59:41treaki__gevaerts, do you mean i should report my start up button hold delay problem in the forum instead at the link madcat1990 send?
21:00:20gevaertstreaki__: if it's a bug, it belongs on the tracker (i.e. the thing madcat1990 linked to). I have no idea if it actually is a bug though
21:02:34treaki__lock key problem: one thing is that it is very impractical to request to press two buttons at once because you need two hands for that. The way it works in the stock firmware with long pressing the home button is much better....
21:03:18treaki__the secound thing is that the player ulocks themself if the playlist endet and you are unable to lock the keys if you are not in the "playing main screen"
21:03:22gevaertsOne problem is lack of buttons
21:03:55 Join Scall- [0] (
21:04:03treaki__for example there is no way to lock the keys while you are listening to FM radio or recording
21:04:29gevaertsI'm sure nobody would object to the idea of a general soft-lock feature, the problem is usually the details
21:04:52NarodI thought the lock option was enabled for FM radio? Or are some keymaps missing?
21:04:58gevaertsForget having a single button press (short or long) that's available in all the screens you want it in
21:05:44*gevaerts blames Sandisk for not having a proper hold switch
21:06:02NarodWell, the Fuze (the old one) got a hold switch.
21:06:30gevaertsYes, all of the old players had them
21:06:32treaki__yes, of cause there are not anough buttons for the feature rich rockbox :)
21:08:21NarodIn all seriousness, though, I don't mind not having a hold switch as long as the soft-lock works properly. I like the way it handles on the Clip models. Pushing the middle button and home at the same time is a good solution.
21:08:45treaki__but I would rather like to have the key lock feature at the "long press home button" action instead of the suddle repeat screen
21:08:57*treaki__ just found out jet that this screen existed
21:09:30treaki__i used the playback setings menu before to switch on of repeat/suffle
21:09:38n1slong press of one button is rather easier to do unintentionally
21:09:45gevaertsWell, that's why we recommend reading the manual :)
21:10:03gevaertsAnyway, it's not a shuffle/repeat screen. You can have any option there you like

21:16:05gevaertsYou'll get that if you run a development build though
21:16:21treaki__that depends in my view of the defenition of a bug. is there a guidline where i can refere to and and find out which things sould be reported at the tracker and which not?
21:16:51gevaertsWell, a bug is when something isn't working as designed and/or documented :)
21:17:17NarodI would assume that the hold and power button thing is supposed to be the way it is right now.
21:18:25NarodMy Clip Zip also boots up even if I just "click" the button, by the way. It shouldn't be a big change, but I dunno.
21:18:30treaki__ok, than i think my first problem is more like a feature request. on the other hand you could question if a mp3 player is designed to go on by mistake... so it could also be a bug. but i think i will report this to the forum.

21:25:50treaki__mine is working...
21:26:19NarodJust you wait. ;)
21:26:37treaki__how long have you used your sans?

21:27:56NarodOh and the buttons of my Clip+ are worn out. I have to press them really hard to get them working.
21:28:21NarodBut it's a very old Clip+ model, I bought it in...2008, I think.

21:31:10NarodI wonder if anyone found out what broke USB mode on the nano 2g, though..
21:31:36treaki__so if you still are not annoyed about my questions i got a third one
21:32:15NarodGo ahead.
21:33:37treaki__the RTC (real time clock) value conversion works different in compare of the stock firmware and rockbox on my sansa clip+
21:34:02NarodWhat do you mean?
21:34:28treaki__so if i set the correct time at rockbox its the wrong time at the stock firmware and on the other and if i set the correct time at the stock firmeware the rockbox time is wrong
21:35:00NarodHey, you're right. It does that on my Clip Zip as well.
21:35:09treaki__so my question is: is it possible to tell rockbox that it sould convert the time to the format the stock firmware also use

22:46:29foolshGeez it looks like it's going for an all time build time record with that one commit
22:48:10bluebrother^Zagor, Bagder: seems like now the git error did hit some build clients. At least mine:
22:48:26 Join Scall [0] (~chat@unaffiliated/scall)
22:49:02gevaertsMine too. Trying to fix manually
22:50:47bluebrother^hmm, now gerrit can't merge the review and pushing the fixed one doesn't work for some reason :(
22:50:56bluebrother^guess I'll keep doing that for later
22:51:19gevaertsA manual git pull origin master gets my client going again
22:52:42gevaertsOr fetch
22:52:57gevaertsAnd those checkouts definitely never saw anything non-master
